21 Tevet 5775
No self-respecting Prime Minister would announce that he could not leave his country to attend an event for security reasons and then go back on his word just because he feared losing political points to his opponents who decided to attend.
No self-respecting Prime Minister would walk in a silent march held on a somber note with other world leaders grinning and waving as if he were on a parade float.
And no self-respecting Prime Minister would walk in such a march, showing solidarity against acts of terrorism, alongside a major contractor of terrorism within his own country.
Sadly, Israel's Prime Minister has no self-respect, and we can't respect him either.
